GOTY Grace Debut At The AG Store!!

image
New Year’s Day was just too much fun! The debut was amazing and it was so nice to be able to go there with my friends! Here is the line one way-

image
– And the other way! We got there at a good time! It was so neat to be around so many doll lovers and see girls with their dolls. I like never see that anywhere, so that was just really neat to see! :)

image

Me and Emma! YAY! Unfortunately, we can’t post pictures with Ginger Spice, because she wants to remain a secret identity šŸ˜‰ As you can see, Emma is much taller than I am, even though I’m older LOL! XDĀ šŸ˜›

image
Here’s me trying to get a Grace doll LOL! That guy was putting some more Grace dolls in place, and when he noticed I wanted one, he handed one to me, and it was perfect!! That was literally the fastest experience of “choosing” a doll EVER!!

image

Me with Grace, and Emma digging through the others, trying to find the right one :)

image

We have our DOLLIES!!! LOL!

image

Here’s a side view of Grace in her City Outfit. I love how they styled her hair!!!

image
Oh. My. Goodness. This is like the most amazing thing EVER!!! The quality of her bakery is incredible!! It’s made of wood and the doors open and close nicely. There are so many adorable accessories that come with it (AG says it comes with over 60 accessories!!), and I love the refrigerator and oven and all the adorable foods!! I know practically everyone is saying that it’s way overpriced, but I really have to disagree. First of all, yes, it is AG, and AG has high prices- that’s totally normal, so I’m not really surprised by the price. Second, it’s made of wood- that adds to the price. Third, it has over 60 accessories!! And fourth, the detail on everything is AMAZING! It all looks so realistic!! So, yes, it is a high price, but honestly, if I had $500 to spare, I would buy it! I think it’s definitely worth the price! You don’t have to agree and it’s okay to disagree, cause everyone has their opinions, but I just wanted to get my opinion out there :)

image
I can’t even begin to describe how obsessed I am with that dough…. I literally wanna stick it in my mouth and eat it LOL šŸ˜›

image

Yummies! šŸ˜€

image

Emma taking a picture LOL!

image

The cabinet is so adorable!!

image

The Baking Accessories are SO CUTE!! I LOVE the mixer and the tablet!! šŸ˜€

image

This outfit is so adorable!! It’s weird, because on every picture AG has (that I’ve seen) the cupcakes on the shirt are upside down, but they actually aren’t! I really don’t understand why their pictures are like that…

image

Me and Emma with the photo op! I think it’s the cutest little set up! :)

image

I really like her beret! If I continue to want one for my dolls, I’ll probably crochet one :)

image

I don’t really care for this outfit, but I’m sure a lot of girls do. I just love the hairstyle they did on her with that outfit!! Her hair looks so poofy! Though you can’t tell in this picture LOL šŸ˜›

image

Baking Outfit!! I just adore that apron! šŸ˜€

image
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH OMGOSH!!! This is high on my wishlist!!! šŸ˜€

image

Here’s the full display :)

image

I am so in love with this outfit!! Pink looks SO good on her!! šŸ˜€

image

I love her Travel Coat!! I’m so happy I was able to get this! And also, gotta love the hairstyle šŸ˜›

image

Her pajamas are so stinkin’ cute!! And again, love the hairstyle!! LOLOL! Okay, I’ll stop saying that XD

image

I love this shot!! I had my mom taking pictures for me so that I could look around more easily, and she literally read my mind, cause right when I saw this display, I wanted the exact shot! šŸ˜€

image

Would you just die over this window display with me? I literally could have just stood and drooled over it all day! šŸ˜› This is the best window display I have ever seen!!!

image

Then it was time to go home! And of course, I went back to Emma’s house afterwards so that we could play with our new dolls! What a fun day!!!! šŸ˜€

Did you go to the GOTY debut? Do you plan on getting Grace?

  • LOL! My beanie looks weird in some of those pictures! LOL!XP I’m so glad that we got to go!:)
    -Emma AKA COOKIE-

  • This was fun to read! I had a great time shopping with you and Emma on New Years!

  • Looks like you had lots of fun! My family made a trip to the store at Mall of America for the debut, and I got Grace too! She is GORGEOUS! I love her freckles and her hair! Congrats on you new doll!

  • Oh, my, g-o-s-h :) :) šŸ˜› šŸ˜€

  • It looks like you had a really fun time! I’m wanting to go to the AG store for my birthday, I haven’t gone in like 4 years, so. šŸ˜›
    I’LL DIE OVER THAT DISPLAY WITH YOU SO GORGEOUS!!!
    I’m saving up for Grace, she will be the first doll I will buy with my own money. I’m working really hard around the house to earn $70, since my parents already owe me $50, and then I have to pay for shipping, so. And if I get her at the AG store I’ll probably want an outfit. šŸ˜› OK, I’ll stop talking now. Sorry! XD

    ~Lydia~ <3

    • We did! Awe, that would be so much fun for you! šŸ˜€
      LOL! YES! THANK YOU! šŸ˜€
      That’s awesome! I’m so excited for you to get her! :)
      LOL! It’s okay! šŸ˜›
      ~Jaclynn~

  • It looks like you had an awesome time! I didn’t know the bakery was made out of wood, I thought it was made out of plastic lol. I know understand why the price was so high šŸ˜€
    ~L.Rose

  • I think grace is really pretty, and I’m glad you got her. šŸ˜€ You have a lot of dolls!!!! I am so jealous!!!!! :) I’m actually pretty dissapointed with grace though, she looks like a lot of other dolls that AG has made, and she has blue eyes (again) and light skin (again) and brown hair (again).

    • Thank you! šŸ˜€
      Hmm.. I have to disagree actually. There is no other doll exactly like her and I think her coloring and everything about her is great and unique :) And if you think about it, blue eyes and brown hair are pretty popular in the world, so I think it makes sense for AG to keep doing dolls like that :)
      I do agree that it would be neat to have an AA GOTY doll, since AG hasn’t done that yet, but it is exciting that they will be making a new AA doll to add to the BeForever line in 2016 šŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~

      • Yes, she is very unique. It’s just that she reminds me of a lot of them, like Mckenna, Nellie, and a few MAGs. And now that you point it out, brown hair and blue eyes are really popular (I have brown hair and blue eyes…..)
        It is really exiting that they are making an AA doll in 2016!!! But I still wish they would make another one for GOTY.
        – Emmaly

        • Oh, and I don’t remember if I said that I would REALLY like to have grace in my collection if I had enough room, even though she looks a lot like one of the dolls I already have. (A doll from a different doll company)

  • Omigosh! It looks like you bloggers had a great time. Wish I could’ve been there!! šŸ˜‰
    How tall are you? I’m 4.11.
    I really like all her stuff, but my favorite is probably the doll itself. No mean to brag, but I think I might have to have her for my birthday, hehe!
    Love the pics, Jacc!!
    ~Jana

  • So fun!!!!! I want Grace so much! I’ll probably get her in March if I get enough money for my birthday. So glad you had a good time. šŸ˜€

    -Morgan

  • Looks like you had a great time! Congratulations on adding Grace to your collection. You’re right…she’s really cute.

  • u and emma are so pretty lucky to go to the AG store! :) ive been to one store twice and its the best except i dont like how expensive AG is :( sadly, i dont buy from AG but i do love the catalogs and buying local on craigslist so its all good

    • Thank you! šŸ˜€
      Yes, their prices are high, but I always say – you pay for the quality and the experience :)
      Oh, well, that’s good! :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • Jaclyn you are so lucky! I have only been to a A.G. store 1 in August, so i have never been to a GOTY debut! I am planning on getting Grace after my fire kindle. My bff has Chrissa and they look simaler so we think when i get Grace and go to slumber parties it will be like our dolls are twins!LOL We are also planning on getting matching Grace stuff for our dolls like her dog, pjs, and city outfit, so i am excited!

    • Thank you! :)
      LOL! That’s a good idea! Me and my friend have done that before with Saige – it was so funny! šŸ˜›
      Oooh, yay!! I hope you love her when you get her! :)
      ~Jaclynn~

  • I probably will do a ton of extra chores too for ton extra money. On Amazon my sis and i sold our molly book set and are splitting the money, so thats one way for extra money.

  • Also, to anyone who is making a knock off of Graces bakery or cart, americangirlideas.com has a bakery box and bag printable, and also different crafts for Grace!

  • I’m really jealous that you got to go, LOL!
    I like Grace a lot, but for me it is really frustrating that she is the 4th Caucasian GOTY doll in a row. I think I would be more willing to get her if she wasn’t.
    My sister Claire loves her, though, and when Claire loves a doll, even if I just like the doll, we typically end up with that doll (1/3 of our dolls are like that, haha) So, I wouldn’t be surprised if this time next year Grace is here. We’d rename her though. Do you like the name Piper for her? I told her that if we could see her in person and we loved her and could get whichever doll retires this year (if we want them) also, then we can. he took that be a yes.
    I’m crossing my fingers that I can go to the AG store for my birthday this year, and maybe even go twice! So hopefully I will be able to see her (none of my friends want her, either) and get her coat, which is made of 101% pure awesomeness. šŸ˜‰

    P.S.-I feel really guilty, because my computer won’t let me comment on Madi’s blog (DWOD). I read it all the time, and keep trying to comment, but it won’t let me. Could you comment and tell her that it won’t let me comment, but I am still reading it every day? No pressure, but I thought I would ask.

    • Oh, I don’t really mind about things like that. I just see the doll, love it, want it, buy it LOLOL! šŸ˜€ šŸ˜›
      Hmm… I think she could be Piper :)
      That would be awesome! I hope you do get to go! LOLOL! Yes, it is!! The coat is SO adorable! šŸ˜€
      ~Jaclynn~
      P.S. Oh, you’re having that same problem?? That’s so weird!! I felt like I was the only one! I would definitely let her know if I could, but I’m afraid I can’t, because I can’t comment on her blog either…. I’m sorry :(

      • For me that can be a really big factor. It kinda depends on if my love for the doll is more or less then my annoyance that it is yet another Caucasian doll (‘m Caucasian, and mean no disrespect towards other Caucasians, it just feels like there is a need for more diversity)
        Yeah! I think possibly Piper Grace Davis, living in France during WW2. I love to learn about WW2, especially how it affected countries in Europe, so I just have to convince my sister that if we do get her, that would a good plot. Hehe.
        Me too! I know! I love it so so so so so so so much!

        Kathleen

        P.S.-Haha, I thought it was just me! Then I tried it on all the computers in the house and it still didn’t work. Then I was wondering if she had somehow blocked me so that overtime I commented, it had to be approved. But then they still weren’t showing up. It is OK if you can’t, at least I am not thinking I accidentally offended her!
        I know it works for Carli, and some other people, or she wouldn’t have any comments. Maybe it isn’t working for people in certain areas? I’ve never heard of that happening, but that is the only thing I can think of. If anyone other then Jaclyn reads this, and you are able to comment on Madi’s blog (delightfulworldofdolls.com) please tell her that we are having issues commenting!

        • Typos today! Yikes!
          I meant:
          (I’m Caucasian, etc
          every time I commented
          anyone other than Jaclynn

          Sorry!

          • I am able to comment on DWOD with no problem. however its Blogspot blogs i cannot comment on idk why but i just cant the tab never opens for me.

  • I love this post! And I LOVE the window display!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will die over it with you! IT’S BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

  • You got great photos! Her outfits are all so nice!
